Chronic subdural haematoma(CSDH) is a neurological condition, which is more common among the elderly. Learn more about the condition, its symptoms, treatment and more.
Risk FactorsTrauma to the brain from a head injury is the most common cause of CSDH. The elderly and chronic alcoholics are more at risk mainly because of brain and vein shrinkage due to age or alcohol abuse. When the head is accidentally hit, even during a minor head injury, the bridging veins are stretched even more, making the person more liable to suffer from CSDH.
